Coming Soon in Flower Power

Hi Everyone,

We're glad so many of you are playing the game and we've been listening to your feedback!  We have a lot of changes and additions planned, here's a sneak peek:

  • More regions / flowers / other items
  • A better way of selecting flowers - particularly when you have lots.
  • Fixing up a lot of bugs in the way the game works - it doesn't even load for some players and we have to fix that!
  • Changing the way "bloom time" works.  Right now when you click "Plant a garden" a 2 minute timer (or more depending on your area) starts.  We're going to change it so a shorter timer starts when you actually finish designing a garden.  This makes more sense and should cut down on waiting.
  • More complicated puzzles - and more variety, so if you like easy puzzles you can go to certain areas, and if you like hard ones you go to other areas.
  • We're going to change the map so it's easier to see all of the other places you can go and the different difficulty levels that are out there.

We want Flower Power to be: A game where you solve puzzles (gardens) to advance through areas and get access to lots of cool things.  With the money you earn and items you can unlock you can plant awesome personal gardens and compete in Garden Shows to show off your design skills!

We're working to make it more clear that that is what the game is about, as we don't think it's that clear in a lot of ways yet, and appreciate everyone playing as we build!

We're also looking into some other things, but are not sure what we are going to do with them yet:

  • We want to make sure that you earn money at a pace that allows you to buy things was you progress, but not take too long, or make it trivial to get tons of everything.
  • We want to figure out how to make it clear that you will NOT be able to make a perfect garden every time - the higher levels should get a lot harder, and unless you're an amazing player, you'll only get a perfect garden occasionally.
  • Higher regions should also take longer, but you should feel like you are still making progress.

That's just a preview of some of the things we are doing and some of the things we are thinking about!  We are reading everything posted in this group and doing surveys to get more information.  We won't be able to make every change that everyone wants, but we are listening and trying to make the game as fun as possible.  We appreciate everyone's feedback!

Thanks :) I like the game alot....I do have a suggestion though....In latte land we get energy packs plus points for completeing awards.....Perhaps in this game we could get garden squares....or a special item for the garden or a choice between the 2,in addition to the points.....The Expansions for the gardens are very expensive and very small for the price as well as having to be in the shape chosen for the game...It would be nice to earn squares and place them ourselves to make the gardens unique.Also it would be nice to not have to use up a garden square for lights and decorations........Just a thought...Thanks again:)
